Via Fort Worth Real Estate - - - Karen Anne Stone (HomeFindersDFW): Tonight I signed on to Active Rain... I was on several times already today and this were "normal", but now... ONCE AGAIN... the dear sweet folks at Active Rain have chosen to "FIX" something what WAS NOT BROKEN.

With Soci@l Media, Our Lives Are An Open (Face)Book - 10:14 AM
Do you ever find yourself saying things like "I know her from Facebook"? It's easy to feel that way when you are privy to many folks' daily routine, including the bargains they just found, the cute things their kids say, pictures of their dog and a million other bytes of trivia, some absolutely fascinating in its banality. But even the least interesting of tidbits is revealing because it tells us something about a person and it allows us to learn what we have in common with people we have not met and don't actually know. We are really just putting it out (49 comments)

Why Don't Agents Call Back Or Give Feedback?? - 01:15 AM
I've been in the business a long time. I know what it's like to have a seller calling all the time to know what a buyer is thinking about their home or whether the buyer they're now in contract with has their mortgage. Seems like we've gotten to a point where agents don't feel it necessary to call back when I've left a message. Never a difficult message. I'm just asking for the agents to call me back and let me know. I've now left two messages for 2 individual agents- both have buyers in contract on my properties and neither (8 comments)

What sellers need to know before going to the market - 02:37 PM
While buyers have adjusted to current market conditions the same cannot be said for all current or prospective sellers. There are many homeowners still assuming their home is worth what it appraised for a few years ago. I was a recent seller myself and can understand the "psychology of loss" that some sellers go through, but it's important to understand how many factors are playing into the current marketplace and adjust accordingly and confidently. What is an appraiser going to look at? One of the big changes I've seen in the marketplace is how comparable homes are being scrutinized by an (0 comments)
